ARTIST OF THE WEEK: @jc_vittorelli_ink : As a child i always had to study during my holidays. but i was drawing with my dad instead. after i finished school i wanted to study medicine but i started with pharmacy and beside i started to work as a bodypiercer in innsbruck and here i came into tattooing. my sister is also a tattooartist and i could get more into tattooing at her shop. today i‘m glad and so grateful, because now i can make my art alive - with tattooing. nothing is made in life that doesn‘t have a purpose. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #tattooed #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inked #inkedup #tattooart #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #tattooartist #tattooshop #simpletattoo #traditionaltattoo #rosetattoos #rosetattoo #boldwillhold

@erinscissrhands : After a really hard year, I started my bodysuit. The Phoenix (rebirth) represents myself, and the snake in its claw is all the bad shit. Abuse, depression, self harm, anxiety... it’s there to remind me that I did, and can, make it through whatever life throws at me. It’s really personal so I didn’t wanna get toooo into it. My half sleeve is for my daughter, it’s a cover up if that’s on my back (also soon to be gone!) I’ve always loved sewing, which is why I have her name stitched into the heart, with thread and bobbins around it. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #tattooed #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inked #inkedup #tattooart #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #underboobtattoo #chesttattoo #phoenixtattoo #bigtattoo #halfsleeve #flowerstattoo

@sal_sierro : This is a portrait of my cousin. He was an Army Ranger. He lead the way for me into the Army, to become a Ranger and then deploy. Him and I lived states apart all our lives but we’re closer than brothers. He died two weeks after I returned home from my first deployment to Afghanistan. He was a true Ranger, leading the way as a friend, brother, Ranger and a father. The galactic looking dream space is represent of the BiFrost bridge. In Norse mythology the Valkyrie choose the most valiant slain in battle and take them up the BiFrost bridge to Valhalla. The BiFrost is said to be a “rainbow bridge” made of Fire(red), air(green) and water(blue). However as you can see it is not all the colors of an actual rainbow. In any case this is a depiction of my cousin going to Valhalla after death. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #tattooed #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inked #inkedup #tattooart #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #realistictattoo #boldwillhold #usaflag #tattoorealism #colortattoo #armtattoo #usatattoo

@cherry.von.darling : My story of this tattoo is simple, as well as intense, I am talking about my facial tattoo: Love, it is the word that moves my life for me, love is everything: love to my family, to music, to animals, to nature ... to the life! It was crazy to make the tattoo on my face, but love is crazy and I'm crazy for love. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #tattooed #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inked #inkedup #tattooart #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #facetattoo #boldwillhold #traditionaltattoo #tattoofont #necktattoo

@jhilks : A small tattoo to commemorate what a huge part of my life Mac was. I used to get happy every time I saw this tattoo on his hand cause I knew he was reppin Pittsburgh, the city we were both from. now I have it in order to represent him Rest easy Mac. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #simplicity #simpletattoo #smalltattoo #tinytattoo #wristtattoo #ripmacmiller

@alexnwonderlandd : My ice cream cone tattoo on the back of my shoulder is just one of my many favorites. I could eat ice cream everyday for the rest of my life. But it’s also meaningful to me. When i was little, my dad and grandpa would always take me and my sisters to an old fashioned little ice cream shop in a small town of Michigan. It still sits there today and we still continue to go to it whenever we visit! Life is sweet and colorful. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #backtattoo #colortattoo #icecreamtattoo #fingerstattoo #rosetattoo

@blond_graphic : I made the first rose when I was in love with my boyfriend. The second one when he left me. The third, the bud, when I realized that I had to be reborn and think of myself. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #rosestattoo #blackandgreytattoo #rosetattoo #rosetattoos #blacktattoo #simpletattoo

@lady_felidae : My tattoo on my arm, has the lyrics for Three Little Birds of Bob Marley. On my dark days, I’ve always listened to that song and it automatically makes me a feel better. I do also have a portrait of my cat on the other arm as he is also something that gives me strength. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #sternumtattoo #underboobtattoo #sleevetattoo #sleeve #cattattoo #catlover #skulltattoo #rosetattoo #rosestattoo #blackandgreytattoo

@leaorlet : I got these two Lady’s on my legs because they reflect the two sides of me. The Indian woman stands for strength, courage and fighting spirit. She should remind me of all the things i want to reach in life. The crying lady stands for the days when you just let go, she should show me that I don’t always have to be strong, that it’s okay to be weak from time to time. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #sternumtattoo #underboobtattoo #legtattoo #portraittattoo #boldwillhold #blackandgreytattoo #tattoorealism #tattoorealistic

@gemma_filippo : The tattoo under the breast is a mandala, it represents a lotus flower with an eye in the center. Symbolizes purity and femininity. In the Hindu creed, the goddess Shiva is depicted with the "Third Eye", positioned in the center of the forehead. The eye of spirituality, of intuitiveness and of the soul and is an instrument of sensory perception. While the eyes allow us to see the material things around us, the third eye allows us to see the unseen. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #sternumtattoo #underboobtattoo #lotustattoo #lotusflower #lotusflowertattoo #blackandgreytattoo #ornamentaltattoo

@imnodamochiiee : This is my first tattoo. The jasmine flowers represent not only my favourite smell but my favourite flower! Sakura or cherry blossoms represent the start of new things often seen in Spring time. At the time that I got this tattoo, I had moved to Paris. I quit my 9-5 to explore a new country, new language I didn't understand. The Mandela represents the wholeness or being at one with yourself. A constant reminder that you are the captain of your own ship and you create your own happiness. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #backtattoo #ornamentaltattoo #blackandgreytattoo #mandalatattoo #blacktattoo

@alltagseskapaden : This tattoo is an homage to my grandpa who was the first one who showed me what unconditional love looks and feels like. He took care of me for several months, when my parents could have not been able to. Besides that he drew me pictures of my favourite animal, a goldfish. After a couple days he bought me my very first two goldfishes and convinced the airline to take them with me to Germany, where I used to live with my parents. Every year when I visited him there were plenty of goldfishes At his place, until the day he passed away when I was 10. He has been burried alive because of an earthquake. Still love him unconditionally. He's my guiding angel. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #koifish #backtattoo #tattoorealism #realistictattoo #koifishtattoo #japanesetattoo

@coloradokillerqueen : This is the beginning of my full-leg horror piece. I have been a horror fan for as long as I can remember - my mom always had Stephen King novels dominating her bookshelf, and I was always fascinated by that. Growing up reading these novels, and being introduced to all of the wonderful characters from page to film, has held deep meaning in my life. I’ve always been fascinated with the darker side of life. Horror makes you think, it makes your heart pound... and most of all, it’s unapologetic. This leg piece is all thanks to the lovely @pigmentgypsy. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #portraittattoo #thightattoo #horrortattoo #boldwillhold #blackandgreytattoo #blacktattoo #tattoorealism #realistictattoo

@that_lia_life : As a classical music student, I wanted something that represented what music means to me. I didn't want anything obvious as so many people who don't have any clue what the theory behind music is have tattoos consisting of musical notation. I finally decided to take a look into the artworks of Wassily Kandinsky, who did a lot of art depicting his visualizations of classical music works. This is what caught my eye. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #abstracttattoo #arttattoo #wassilykandinsky #ornamentaltattoo #thightattoo #colorfultattoo #boldwillhold #colortattoo

@michael_genay : At 36 yrs old I just got my first tattoo! I waited long enough, made sure I was finally mature enough to get them without regret! Across my chest reads “Always The Hard Way” I grew up in a ghetto setting to say the least. As a 9th grade drop out I’ve made some really horrible choices in life but I completely turned my life around and actually live a life with a career law enforcement! I believe officers should treat people on a more personal level. My tattoos remind me of where I come from. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #chesttattoo #tattoofont #boldwillhold #traditionaltattoo #crowntattoo

. ARTIST OF THE WEEK: @mmarinaraluca : Web developer turned into a tattoo artist. Few years ago I went to an ink studio to make my first tattoo and never left it. I was so impressed by this industry and I knew that I have to be a part of it. After my tattoo was done, I returned to the ink studio everyday for 1 month until someone took me as an apprentice. I learned, I drew, I bought my first machine and I asked my Mom to be my first client. This is how it all started and now I am grateful to make art on other people’s skin. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #blackandgreytattoo #tattooartist #tattooshop #simpletattoo #tattoorealism #realistictattoo #boldwillhold #portraittattoo #tigertattoo #skulltattoo #sternumtattoo

@catlynn.catacombs : When I was younger my older brothers got me into HP Lovecraft. I grew a love for his dark and terrifying world. So today I have a massive Cthulhu piece. I guess the tattoo kinda represents family as well as personal internal monsters. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #ribtattoo #legtattoo #octopustattoo #tattoorealism #asstattoo #realistictattoo #thightattoo #seatattoo #bigtattoo #boldwillhold

@shanouelise : I love how tattoos made my soul feel more connected to my body. I often felt and sometimes feel disconnected. At days like this it’s like the girl I look at in the mirror could have been everyone. “Me” just feels surreal and strange. To get a certain design on my body was a decision I (the spiritual part of me) made and when it appears on my skin it proofs that the two (body and mind) work and belong together. #whatsyourtattoostory #newtattoo #inkstagram #tattoodesign #inkedup #tattoooftheday #firsttattoo #instatattoo #inkedlife #likemyrecent #tattoodo #epicreads #tattooedgirls #tattoodo #tattooedguys #likemeback #igreads #tattoolover #tattooidea #tattooedmodel #blackandgreytattoo #ornamentaltattoo #rosetattoo #rosestattoo #thightattoo #realistictattoo #rosetattoos
